After leaving the harbour and passing through Pentewan, you begin one of the most challenging sections along the southern coast.
Leaving the harbour head up to Penare Point passing many overgrown ruins and the small harbour at Pentewan. The village is worth a visit with a nice pub and café. Pass golden sands and head up past Gamas Point and uphill to the rugged Black Head, where the Iron Age Castle used to sit proudly on the cliff top.
The path heads back down to the coastline and subsequently takes an inland turn towards St Austells bay. This section ends in Charlestown with its tall ships and very interesting visitors centre.
